In January 2002, the Boston Globe published the first in a series of stories about the Boston Catholic Archdiocese and their alleged coverup of the sexual abuse of children by priests over a period of decades. A national controversy ensued. For months before that, however, the newspaper's "Spotlight Team" had been investigating the allegations, interviewing countless victims and witnesses to dig up what had happened. It's taken 13 years for a film version to appear, but now the first trailer for Spotlight has been released, and it generates a good amount of genuine, dramatic tension. The trailer sets up the premise well, and also establishes a strong tone of authority. The cast is led by Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams as two of the...

Today we have the official trailer for the upcoming "Spotlight" film, starring Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, and John Slattery. Check it out below. The movie is based on a story by the Boston Globe that investigates the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts. Boston Globe's team of reporters spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-up by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests and opened the floodgates to other revelations of molestation and cover-ups around the world that still reverberate today. "Spotlight" is directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor) and is set to hit theaters on November 6th. Trailer: »

With an absolutely fantastic cast, including Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schrieber, John Slattery, Billy Crudup, and Stanley Tucci, Spotlight doesn’t seem to be afraid of exploring it’s subject matter, and it’s hard not to shake the feeling of a 70’s style thriller, a la All the President’s Men, from the trailer. This is certainly one movie that should be high on your must watch list. Released: 6th November »

"I know there's a story here, and I think everybody will hear about it." The Boston Globe was ready to investigate the Catholic Church in its own city, and now Hollywood is, too. Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and more play reporters at the famous newspaper in the forthcoming film, Spotlight, and are ready to do whatever it takes to put the "spotlight" on a corrupt system. Liev Schreiber, who plays Marty Baron, editor of the Boston Globe, learns "the Boston priests molested kids in six different parishes over the past 30 years. The Church found out about it and did nothing." Keaton's team, known as Spotlight, is then put in charge of investigating the »
While it.s tempting to place the title Spotlight over the tagline, "Batman and The Hulk team-up to fight corruption," the solemnity of the subject matter makes that impossible. The film, starring Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, and other impressive cast members, actually tackles a serious real-life issue that devastated a Catholic-packed Boston. Check out the drama.s debut trailer below. It.s certainly a familiar premise. A ragtag group of righteous reporters stumbles onto a stunning scandal, prompting the various powers-that-be to stonewall, as frightened, would-be whistleblowers slam doors in the faces of the embattled investigators. Conventionality aside, Spotlight may not look so much to recapture the magic of the muckraking movie genre embodied by classics like All the President.s Men, or later efforts like The Insider, but it nevertheless stands as a potential gateway to deeper conversation to a subject that has had its share of headlines in »
Director Tom McCarthy's intense drama follows the Boston Globe's legendary investigative unit as it seeks to uncover systemic child abuse within the Church's clergy.
The Boston Globe's real-life coverage of the scandal earned the paper a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service 12 years ago.
Spotlight bows on November 6 in the Us. A UK date has not yet been set. »
Each year, a lot of filmmakers make a lot of movies. Some of them are noteworthy, some become celebrated award-winners, while a rare one or two enter into the annals of history – taking place alongside great works by artists such as Alan J. Pakula. Part of the fun is predicting which film – if any – will fall into the latter category, and this year, all eyes are on Spotlight.
It’s not an outlandish idea to compare the upcoming drama to Pakula’s legendary All The President’s Men, since the subject matter shares the theme of presenting a fictionalized account of some of the most important and remarkable journalism of the 20th century. Where Pakula’s Oscar winner focused on The Washington Post’s work on the Watergate scandal, Spotlight depicts the work of The Boston Globe in uncovering the Massachusetts Catholic sex abuse scandal of 2001.

Tom McCarthy has become a familiar figure over the course of his career in several arenas, whether as a performer on Syriana and HBO’s The Wire, or as a writer for films such as Pixar’s Up and Million Dollar Arm. It is as a filmmaker, however, that McCarthy has gained the most prominence, receiving critical acclaim for his filmmaking debut The Station Agent, which was matched by the praise for his follow-ups The Visitor and Win Win. With his last film hitting theatres early this year, McCarthy immediately got back behind the camera for his next film, titled Spotlight. The film’s synopsis is as follows.
The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.

Movie trailers are starting to scare us a bit. Last week Lionsgate released a preview for "Freeheld" which made the gay rights drama look like a Lifetime movie. Today we have the first look at "Spotlight," the new ensemble drama centered on The Boston Globe's investigation into child abuse by Catholic priests and the Church's subsequent cover-up. We're hoping the movie is better than the first preview. The best news about "Spotlight" is that it brings a bunch of actors working at the height of their craft together. Mark Ruffalo has been pretty exceptional in everything he’s done since 2010's "The Kids Are All Right." Michael Keaton is coming off his first Oscar nomination for "Birdman." Rachel McAdams is hands down the best thing about "True Detective" season two. Across the cable dial Liev Schreiber's incredible work on "Ray Donovan" is making everyone forget about the bad movie roles he's landed recently. »
